Urban Decay Naked Basics 2

Hi Angels,

As you already know we Pretty Prescribers are fans of Urban Decay.  We especially like their best selling Naked Palettes.  In addition to their Naked Palette, the brand released Naked Basics.  These are mattes that can be used in addition to the shimmery shades.

Well today Urban Decay released Naked 2 Basics  These colors are a welcome addition to your Naked 2 palette.  Here is what the brand had to say...
"Cooler in tone than the original, Naked2 Basics complements Naked 2 perfectly. We loaded this indispensable palette with six TAUPE-hued matte neutrals, including five never-before-seen shades. These shadows are neutral enough for anyone, from cool skin tones to olive complexions to darker skin."

Here is a pic of the new palette courtesy of Urban Decay:
 
The colors are described by the brand as follows: (from left to right)
 Skimp (pale nude satin), Stark (nude-pink matte), Frisk (warm gray matte), Cover (muted red-brown matte), Primal (muted brown matte) and Undone (deep, smoky brown matte). 

The next pic is of the  previously released Urban Decay Naked 2 palette:( also courtesy of Urban Decay's website)
The Naked 2 Basics opens up
More options for the Naked 2 palette. The possibilities of beautiful daytime looks has increased twofold. The palette is available at UrbanDecay.com for $29.This idea is great. Although I don't own this Naked 2 Palette, I am anxious to see what Naked 3 Basics will contain.  I do own Naked 3 as well as the original Naked palette. 

So what so we think Angels?  Are you interested?  Let us know if it's a yay or nay.  We look forward to hearing from you.

Until next time Angels,

What's Buzzin' in the blogosphere!

Hi Angels,

I just wanted to let you know about some of the news items causing a buzz in the blogosphere.  
Anastasia has teamed up with Makeup artist Amrezy to bring you an eyeshadow palette.  It contains neutrals and vibrant pops of color. The buzz has been positive.  This palette comes with a brush and is available for $29 at AnastasiaBeverlyHills.com and exclusively at Ulta stores.  Here it is pictured below courtesy of Ulta.



The next items are from Stila Cosmetics. The first one is their new mascara.  It is called Mile High Lashes.  The brand says that the sky is the limit for length, lift and volume. It is pictured below.(courtesy of stilacosmetics.com)

Their other release is in the lip region.  Stila has released what they believe is a new generation in metal makeup.  These beauties pictured below are called the magnificent metals lip glosses. They are lip lacquers with a cutting ede multi-dimensional finish. They are available wherever Stila is sold for $23.00.


The last product is from the geniuses at Lancome.  The leaders in mascara have done it again.  All other brands have been put on notice. LOL.  Grandiose mascara was released last week by the brand powerhouse.  Everything from the ad, the packaging and the mascara itself is innovative. Have a look at these pics courtesy of Lancome.

Here is a close up of the mascara: this is actually the shadow of the package.

Lastly we have a close up of the mascara and wand.
The patented swan neck wand allows for application in many different directions with the greatest of ease. This beauty is sold for $32.00 wherever Lancome is sold.

Converse X Missoni at Nordstom's

Hi Angels,

I was reading my emails and found this interesting tidbit from Nordie's.  Converse and Missoni have teamed up for a limited edition take on the Chucks that are currently available.  Here is the pic courtesy of Nordstom's:

Aren't they cute my Fashionista Angels? And you won't have to fight off a stampede like the one at Target a few years back.  Everyone can have a piece of Missoni for a reasonable price.  

So what do we think Angels?  Will this sneaker become a part of your fall staples?  Let us know if it's a yes or no.  We would love to hear from you.

MAC Viva Glam Rihanna II

Hi Angels,

MAC and Rihanna are back at it again.  The powerhouses have just released new pictures for Rihanna's second Viva Glam lipstick and lipglass.  This addition will join Rihanna's Viva Glam1.  The lippies will be released next month.  Here are the pics courtesy of Macosmetics.com.


Rihanna borrows from another Viva Glam Shero for this look. We're talking about none other than Nicki Minaj who has rocked this green hair on many occasions.  Rihanna's take is more mermaidesque.  Now let's take a look at the lippies. (courtesy of maccosmetics.com).

The lipstick, Viva Glam Rihanna II ($19), is a metallic frosty mauve  while the lipgloss ($15) comes in a frosted reddish mauve. 



Profits from the sales will help those affected by HIV and AIDS.Help a cause and look great while doing it.  It sounds like a win/win situation.  Although I didn't purchase her first Viva Glam this one has piqued my interest.  It is different and will be worn differently by everyone.

So what do we think Angels?  Will we be picking this up?  Do you have a favorite Viva Glam?  Let us know what you think.

Until next time Angels

Waterproof Workout!


Hi Angels,

I have to confess. I am trying to get my workout on!!! I have some baby weight I need to shed.  I have just joined my local gym. It is five minutes away from my house so I have no excuse.  The classss have been kicking my butt.  The other day I had to run out of there because my favorite mascara and filled in eyebrows were running down my face.

As you all know, I can compromise in most things but my brows must be on my face at all times.  Now, how I am going to shed pounds and not worry about my brows running down my face?  After trying several eyebrow pencils, eyebrow gels that were not the ride shade, I came up with a different approach.  Why not waterproof what you already have? Enter this gem right here: ( picture courtesy of Sephora.com)

This is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Beauty Genius Clear Waterproofing Gel.  It is sold exclusively at Sephora and Anastasia Beverly Hills  for $18.00.  I just added this beauty to a disposable brow brush.  I applied it over my favorite mascara and eyebrow pencil. Volia no melting brows or eyelashes in extreme heat or excessive sweating. 

Here is a pic of me after my CKO class:



My eyebrows and eyelashes are still intact.  Believe you me, this was quite the test. You can see the beads of sweat on my forehead.  This is also great for the summer months where your brows and eyelashes may call it quits during this hot weather. The best part is that you can continue to use your favorite product. 

So what do we think Angels?  Is this worth a whirl?  Did you need to waterproof your favorite mascara or set your brows in the summer?  Let us know what you think.  

Until next time

Louboutin's For Shoes and Toes

Hi Angels,

We have some news for the shoenistas.  WWD announced that the King of shoes Christian Louboutin has moved into the world of beauty.  His launch begins today with nail polishes.  The signature "Rouge"  is debuting at Saks Fifth Avenue Flagship store in New York. On August 6th Rouge Louboutin will make it's appearance at the rest of the Saks stores as well as Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Bergdoff Goodman and select Sephora stores.  Here is a pic courtesy of Eonline:


This is just the beginning of Monsieur Louboutin's venture into beauty.  There will be 30 shades in total.  The nail polishes will displayed with The iconic red bottom shoes where possible. As told to WWD,"The designer grouped his polishes into in three color families — Pop, Nude and Noir — with the signature Louboutin red getting its own special packaging: a glass orb in gradient shades of black, and a black cap taller than the rest — and the same height as a fantasy ballerina shoe with an impossibly high stiletto heel. The pigment and color is said to be the best that money can buy.  Take a look at this pic courtesy of Huffpost.


These beauty products are not for those with light pockets.  Louboutin's makeup line is set to be more expensive in stores. The next product in the line is under wraps and will not be revealed until later on.

So what do we think angels?  Are we gonna buy Louboutin Rouge or will you stick to your Essie polish?  Let us know what you think.

Until next time Angels

First Lady's been "Brow"sing

Hello Angels,

For me the FLOTUS can almost do no wrong fashion wise.  When certain fashion experts would discuss her looks there were only minor suggestions.  All of them were in an effort to soften her look just a little.  Well this month's essence just arrived at my doorstep.  I would have to say that The First Lady scores a ten.
Here's the cover courtesy of Essence magazine:

What did she do differently?  Well for one her hair is lighter.  That gives her a glow for the season.  But the biggest thing that was done is that her eyebrows are fuller.  It gives her a softer and younger look.  Eyebrow guru Damone Roberts suggested this ages ago.  Someone listened and she looks better than ever.

Here is an earlier pic that you can use for comparison (courtesy of Elle.com)

This look is high fashion and the thinner brow fits the criteria.  In the first picture the FLOTUS looks fresh, fashionable and FIERCE.  The fuller eyebrows are also very on trend.  Some of your favorite celebrities have been doing the same.  When well shaped a fuller eyebrow can easily take a few years off of you. Voila instant face lift.

Are you a thick or thin eyebrow person? Are you for or against growing them out? Let us know what you think?  

Until next time Angels,
Happy Browzing!!!! LOL

Urban Decay Perversion Mascara

Hi Angels, 

On the 13th of this month Urban Decay introduced a new member to their Perversion line.  It is Perversion Mascara. The brand says this mascara will give you the darkest lashes out there.

It boasts a creamy formula that is lump free.  Even after applying another coat to go out after work.  This mascara also had ingredients that will help protect and grow your lashes over time.  

Here is a look at the mascara courtesy of UrbanDecay.com:


Urban decay is also sending a free deluxe sample of their lash primer called Subversion when you order the mascara on their website.
I have to say I am curious.  I am currently in the market for a great mascara.  And since this mascara will give you Bigger, Blacker, Badder lashes, it might be worth trying it out. All of that for $22.00.   Like all other women I just want to look like I am wearing false lashes when I wear mascara.  Is that too much to ask for?  Lol

So Angels, anyone interested in a Bigger, Badder, Blacker lash?  Did you already purchase the mascara?  If so, what did you think? Let us know what your thought are.  The mascara can be purchased at Urban Decay.com for now until it is at a counter and store near you.  

Until next time Angels
